Racing into Spring! 

Designer Outlet Horseback Fashion Show hails start of races fashion season
 
Hundreds of shoppers stopped in their tracks last weekend as McArthurGlen’s Swindon Designer Outlet hosted a Horseback Fashion Show to celebrate the launch of the races fashion season
 
Europe’s leader in designer outlet retailing, McArthurGlen, reports that racing fashion sales represents around 25% of the total annual fashion sales across McArthurGlen’s seven UK centres.
 
 
With only two weeks remaining until Badminton Horse Trials, McArthurGlen’s Swindon Designer Outlet expects to see circa 150,000 race goers over the next two weeks alone.
 
McArthurGlen’s Swindon Designer Outlet is around 30 miles from Badminton and between 30-45 minutes drive time from race courses in nearby Bath, Cheltenham, Newbury and Ascot. With such close proximity to so many race courses, the designer outlet, which offers fashion collections for up to 60% less, is a popular shopping destination for race goers.
 
 
The Horseback Fashion Show took place throughout the afternoon, outside the main entrance of McArthurGlen’s iconic Swindon Designer Outlet. With this stunning backdrop, three 17 hands high racing horses and catwalk models descended on the designer outlet to showcase key racing looks from the centres current collections. 
 
 
“We have over 90 designer and high street stores, at up to 60% off all year round, so a must-visit destination to find designer looks for less - not only for racing but for any special occasion," commented Judith Stephenson, Style Consultant at McArthurGlen Swindon.
 
 
"Key trends this season, such as colour blocking, barely-there chiffon or pleats can all be found in the centre, and for those attending Badminton Horse Trials, we have tweed, fitted skirts and cropped jackets, all perfect for creating the country casual look.”
